The ‘Salón de la Moto' event in Madrid, which takes place from 25-29 May, will tomorrow welcome MotoGP riders Toni Elias and Carlos Checa.

Elias will be one of the guests unveiling a new Honda motorbike simulator recently released by the factory. The Spaniard, who placed second in Turkey, will demonstrate the advantages of ABS systems in a special presentation.

"I think that my result in Istanbul confirms my credentials to be in MotoGP, and that my riding style is appropriate for performing well in the World Championship, despite what has been said," explained Elias when talking about his Turkish podium finish. "I am confident about my chances, and I'm going to continue riding the same way that I always have," he concluded.

Checa, who as you can read elsewhere on motogp.com has received an offer to participate in the Suzuka 8 Hours race, will also be visiting the show, alongside Trial champions Toni Bou & Laia Sanz, and freestyle specialist Dani Torres.
